i agree, i wanted to give dempsey a little bit of credit though.

matching a boxer against arguably the greatest martial artist of all time is pretty uneven though. try doing pushups with only your thumbs. ouch!

if Bruce had fight Ali under boxing rules, Lee losses, or if caught, KO'd. That's a 140/lb vs 215 prime Ali. No contest

Lee would still win fighting strictly under boxing rules. He's too quick and small and would be impossible to land a good punch on. Lee would land the first blow, and then quickly end it with a lightning quick succession of blows.

His fighting technique and skill is unmatched, and despite being about 75 pounds lighter than Ali, he was still stronger. I've read a decent amount about Bruce Lee and it's been said many times that pound for pound he was the strongest man in the world.

"Lee, pound for pound, might well have been one of the strongest men in the world, and certainly one of the quickest". Joe Lewis

Bruce Lee generated more force with his blows than Ali could ever dream of. Lee's physical feats are stuff of legend. They don't seem possible.

Fact: Lee's striking speed from 3 feet with his hands down by his side reached five hundredths of a second.

Fact: Lee could cause a 300 lb bag to fly towards and thump the ceiling with a sidekick.

I could go on and on. You should do a little reading about his workout routine and diet as well. There's so much fascinating information on the man. I love his philosophy.
